Patriotism is thinking your country is great because you were born in it
because humans like to put everything down to feel better
humans love to judge
everything you hate about the human race is the human race and always will be, we're horrible.
racists have the same opinion of why other races sucks. "Because my race is better"
that's pride in your race. pride really is a good way to breed hate, you can't be PROUD of who you are without being proud of who you are not, and being glad you're not that guy is the seed to hate that guy.
people will argue to validate their attitude, will deny it but take a look around, the world is shitty, people are murdered daily for no good reason.
i'm not saying it should change, i'm not that stupid, it can't change just like lions will always at zebras when they're hungry.
we spend more time hating that loving and that's who we are. might as well roll with it, doesn't bother me a bit to admit i hate most people, i won't bother them but i don't give a shit about their story either, you stay on your side, i'll stay on mine, we can exist separately

People behind monopolies are pure evil, but people behind government are pure love. Ok...A government regulated service however, is not driven by profit. It is (to put it very simply) driven to make its product a success. In the case of health care, this means ensuring that as many people as possible get a good health care plan.
And I never stated any government wasn't corrupt, but when you take a number of countries with vastly different goals and beliefs, then slam them together and expect a calm, fair debate, it doesn't quite go so smoothly. Now take that and add into the equation some middle eastern countries where religion is the dominating force in their politics, and you get what's more commonly known as a 'political shit storm'
The result is far more important than the intention. It doesn't matter that they want to cure me as fast as possible if the private healthcare can actually cure me faster than the public healthcare.Public healthcare: Wants to make money off you by you being fit to work, so they want to try and cure you as fast as possible...
At least that's what happens in Brazil.

I would only like to say that first of all I am a human, and after that I am a citizen of my country.
In human history people first formed clans to work together and protect themselves. Those clans slowly were connected into countries either by unification or conquest.
For centuries it seems that countries only divide people. Causing wars and so on. Because of these artificial things, as border or someone's citizenship, people divide themselves to 'better' or 'worse' ones. Instead of treating each other like human beings people become enemies to each other.
If my country and it's 'patriotism' tells me that countr xxx is crap and so are its citizens, then i cba with this kind of patriotism. I don't feel any different than the guy behind the border, especially on the internet. And it annoys me that people always find a way to divide themselves
I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.
I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.
